Description: Making beautiful jewelry out of discarded metals is so satisfying. We will use recycled copper pipe to make an amazing bracelet. The process of annealing allows you to manipulate the metal which is otherwise impossible. Using a hammer and various dapping tools, you will create texture and get the effect of movement on the surface. More annealing and you will shape the cuff. Learn how to apply liver of sulfur and get an incredible high shine. We will complete the project by riveting the cuff with various embellishments.
